AUIS Student's Research Elevates Green Concrete Understanding

Tuesday, August 8, 2023 - 00:00


A remarkable achievement by an American University of Iraq, Sulaimani (AUIS) student, Ahmad Khalil Mohammed, has illuminated new paths in the realm of sustainable construction practices. His research project, titled "Predicting the Compressive Strength of Green Concrete at Various Temperature Ranges Using Different Efficient Soft Computing Techniques," adds significant value to the university's academic success.

Supervised by the esteemed Dr. Ahmed Salih Mohammed, Ahmad embarked on a journey to delve deep into the dynamics of concrete strength enhancement, with a special focus on the incorporation of Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBFS). This eco-friendly alternative material has garnered attention for its potential to revolutionize concrete production.

The project's emphasis on sustainable construction aligns seamlessly with AUIS's commitment to fostering environmentally responsible practices. By contributing to the understanding of factors influencing the compressive strength of GGBFS-containing concrete, Ahmad's work directly supports the university's goal of producing graduates who contribute positively to their communities and industries.
